North Scottsdale Pool Safety

8585 E Sweetwater Ave-7The scorching Arizona heat from May to September does not allow for many outdoor activities besides swimming. With so much time spent around water many Arizonians are all too aware of the inherent risks associated with children and water.

Unfortunately, not a summer season goes by in the North Scottsdale Homes for Sale area without hearing the all too familiar news broadcasts of children drowning in their backyard pool. In fact, for children under the age of five, the number one cause of accidental death is drowning with over 2,000 incidents a year nationwide. The reality is that a child has a ten times greater chance of dying in their family pool than by a gun in the home. Even more sad is that many children under age five that drown are only reported missing for five minutes or less. (Reference).

The only solution to these sobering statistics is continuous education in order to prevent so many needless deaths every year. Fortunately, the more people educated in the North Scottsdale Homes for Sale area about pool safety, the safer summer will be for all children.

There are some key safety precautions that can be taken to save a child’s life. Always make sure that a pool is fenced (4ft tall) and has a latched gate that is inaccessible to small children. Never leave children unattended at the pool, and do not leave the area for any reason. In order to prevent distractions bring everything you will need out to the pool such as the phone, food, and towels. It is also important to make sure that all adults and babysitters supervising pool time become CPR certified, and follow all the pool safety rules. Also, when leaving a pool always double check that the gate is closed securely and all toys are removed in order to prevent children from trying to reach them. Lastly, if a child is missing always check the pool first!
If followed, all of these safety steps can lead to an amazing summer in the water in the North Scottsdale Homes for Sale area. Have fun!
